Hey everyone, I've been with Warhammer 40k for about 10 years now, but I'm just now getting into the whole conversion thing (and new to this forum). I have a few projects I'm beginning soon but I'm afraid to get my hands dirty and start cutting. Before I take the irreversible plunge, I thought I would ask for some advice.
The tool I'm using is a Dremel, and the cutoff wheel it comes cuts at a fantastic rate. The only problem is it leaves a trail of collateral damage, as in the width of the wheel cuts off more than I want. Should I be using this tool, or will one of the hand saws that I've seen at the GW stores cut a thinner swath of destruction? If that isn't the best, which tool should I be using to cut off heads/limbs/weapons? Lastly, do people normally use green stuff to cover up the extra cut areas?

Depending on what you wanna do, you could either cut a little higher and file down afterwards (decapetations etc) or not do it if you fear it would reck the model. In my personal experience i've found that...the humble hack saw works...lol

Greenstuff is excellent for covering up any mistakes or joining seams.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
The saws won't do as much damage, altough Dremel has its own uses.Should I be using this tool, or will one of the hand saws that I've seen at the GW stores cut a thinner swath of destruction?Yep, this goes without saying.Lastly, do people normally use green stuff to cover up the extra cut areas?
